Re: Thomas Burke - Near Omaha Nebraska USA

On the marriage certificate of Margaret, sister of Thomas, her parents (&Thomas's too) were given as Michael Burke, and Norah Conley - given as Connell(y) in other places. Both Margaret & her husband Arthur were illiterate, so could not have put the registrar right about the surname spelling, had it...

Re: Thomas Burke - Near Omaha Nebraska USA

I guess, like most family stories, there's truth, there's fabrication, and there's exaggeration in there! 'Course from this end, with no one much interested for 50 years, we don't have a clue about which bits are which - until you see the evidence, of course! Firstly - thanks a million for the censu...

Thomas Burke - Near Omaha Nebraska USA

Technically, I have a bit of cheek asking for help with Thomas, as if oral history is to be believed, he never set foot in Scotland. However, his sister Margaret was my great grand mother, who came to Scotland in her early adulthood, and lived out her life here! So hopefully you'll all give me your ...

Re: Hugh McDermott born 13.01.1873

A more considered thank you! Thanks to all involved for their help in resolving both mysteries! Annie was indeed illegitimate, and born in Derry, before the whole family, including the McDermott in-laws, and Mrs Toner, transported themselves to Lanarkshire! I will undoubtedly request a photocopy of ...

Re: Hugh McDermott born 13.01.1873

Carol - thanks for your info - I have seen the other 3 trees on Ancestry! These are my second cousins I think you would call them, the grandchildren of 2 of my grandmother's siblings. None of whom I know personally, though I would have met their parents/grand parents at family functions - well, fune...

Re: Hugh McDermott born 13.01.1873

Thanks again Annette, on 2 occasions I've spent about an hour of precious time searching for Annie fruitlessly at the Scotlands People centre in Edinburgh, at NRH - and now I know why!! Not that I am complaining, it is just so much easier nowadays to do these searches, than it must have been before ...

Re: Hugh McDermott born 13.01.1873

Annette - thats brilliant - the birth details for Annie - as the marriage was also in the district of Gendermot - where did you find it?? Was it on LDS ?? I never thought to tale the Mc off the surname, even though I have read before that surnames were often used with or without the Mc & O' prefixes...

Hugh McDermott born 13.01.1873

My Great Great Grandparents were married in Derry 24.08.1868. It appears that sometime soon after they came to Lanarkshire, first to in and around Shotts, then to Omoa Square Omoa village, now part of Cleland, in Lanarkshire. Cleland though part of Shotts Parish, is quite distinct from Shotts itself...
